The Map Is Not The Territory

There should be a better way

Just got a link to a really great video from 1987,

where William Shatner is promotiong the open source GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) , in my Twitter Timeline today.

What I find really interesting is, that Shatner already referes to potentional archeological site location modelling using GIS (~5:30min)!

And of course, I want to use this opportunity to congratulate the GRASS Community for its 30th birthday recently.

This video is first rate inspirational GIS fun, and I will defenetly screen this video in my next GIS class. Oldscool 80's computers, dramatic narrative and best 80's television background music plus the benefits of (open source) GIS to solving many problems. What can be more entertaining in a GIS class? :)

Have fun!
